  Purpose

The purpose of this clinical research study is to learn whether Saxagliptin added to Metformin therapy is more effective than Metformin alone as a treatment for type 2 diabetic subjects who are not sufficiently controlled with Metformin alone


Condition Intervention Phase
Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2
Drug: Saxagliptin + Metformin
Drug: Placebo + Metformin
Drug: Pioglitazone
Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: "A Multicenter, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Phase III Trial to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of BMS-477118 in Combination With Metformin in Subjects With Type 2 Diabetes Who Have Inadequate Glycemic Control on Metformin Alone"

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Baseline and Change From Baseline in Hemoglobin A1c (A1C) at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Mean change from baseline is adjusted for baseline value.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Baseline and Change From Baseline in Fasting Plasma Glucose (FPG) at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Mean change from baseline is adjusted for baseline value.

  • Percentage of Participants Achieving Therapeutic Glycemic Response (A1C < 7.0%) at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Baseline and Change From Baseline at Week 24 in Postprandial Glucose (PPG) Area Under the Curve (AUC) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Mean change from baseline is adjusted for baseline value.

Detailed Description:

All subjects will participate in a lead-in period, and qualifying subjects will continue into a short-term randomized treatment period. Subjects who complete the short-term period will be eligible to enter the long term extension period. Also, subjects in the short-term period who have an elevated blood sugar that requires additional medication for blood sugar control will be eligible to enter the long-term treatment extension period where they will receive pioglitizone added onto their blinded study medication

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 77 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

  • Body mass index <= 40 kg/m2
